VMPS Larger Subwoofer - $500 (Quitman) (Texas - Dallas / Fort Worth)

http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/ele/4391366821.html

No Picture.


"I have a VMPS Larger Sub finished in Golden Oak. I have owned it for approx. 12-13 years and it has not been used for the last 3 years plus. It has been stored inside my home however and there is some fading on the finish but not much. They are real oak veneer so they can be refinished in any color. This is a very large and HEAVY sub that I paired Klipsch La Scalas so NO shipping. Google VMPS Larger Sub and you will find that this is a highly rated sub that will go down to 18 Hz. Will take the first $500"

REPOST:   VMPS Speakers - $399 (Sunnyvale, CA)

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/ele/4398214876.html








"I inherited these VMPS (local company) speakers recently, in a good and working condition.
Dims are 15"X15"X43", 85 Lbs each. Serious piece of audio gear.  Ideal for someone who wants
performance of a few thousand dollar speakers for just a few hundred bucks. They have powerful
yet tight bass."

Looks like the top tweets are popped out. I bet those sound great when working properly.

Actually, it looks like the piezo tweeters have been 'replaced' with a 2nd pair of JVC ribbons.  Not so successfully either.    :duh:

100% Positive feedback













"VMPS F3 SPEAKERS FOR LOCAL PICK UP ONLY. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE ONE PICTURE THE WOOD FOR THE RIBBON TWEETER PANEL IS BROKE. THAT'S THE CASE FOR THE LEFT SPEAKER AS WELL. THE WOOD PIECE FOR THE LEFT SPEAKER IS LOST. THIS HAPPENED DURING THE MOVING OF THE SPEAKERS. THESE ARE 200 LBS PER SPEAKER. 64'' TALL 16'' DEEP AND 19'' WIDE WITH THE RIBBON ATTACHED. THE SOUND FROM THESE SPEAKERS IN MY WORDS ARE OUTSTANDING YES THEY WORK AND WORK AWESOME. THE WOOD BREAKAGE DOES NOT EFFECT THE SOUND ONLY THE LOOK. THIS CAN BE FIXED WITH SOME WOOD WORKING SKILLS.  THE GRILLS ARE VELCRO ON THE PLASTIC PINS BROOK FROM THE OTHER OWNER. I'M THE 2ND OWNER. I LOVE TO LISTEN TO THESE BUT I HAVE OTHER SPEAKERS AND FOR SIZE AND ROOM SAKE I WOULD LIKE THESE TO GO TO ANOTHER AUDIO GUY LIKE MYSELF. THE WOOD IS GREAT FOR AGE 7 OUT OF 10. AGAIN I WILL SAY THE BEST TOWER SPEAKER THAT I HAVE LISTEN TOO. GOOGLE THEM AND READ MORE AND ABOUT THE FOUNDER  ALSO COMES WITH THE EXTERNAL CROSSOVER AND POWER SUPPLY. I DO NOT USE IT  I'M NOT SURE IF IT WORKS SO IT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT OR SERVICED. THANKS FOR LOOKING. ASK ME ANY ???s ABOUT THE SPEAKERS AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO REPLY. PICK UP ONLY. YOU WILL NEED A PICKUP TRUCK OR SUV. NO BOX'S."

Repost:  VMPS RM40 Light Cherry Color  -  $1,650.00  (Pine Grove, CA)

http://app.audiogon.com/listings/full-range-vmps-rm40-light-cherry-color-2014-04-01-speakers-95665





"Payment has to be made through Paypal before I will drive anywhere to deliver these.  Verified Paypal users only.

I'm rating a 7/10 for minor scuffs and the bubbling in several places of the veneer.  3 to 4 years old if
memory is correct.  Brian's speakers were built notoriously for sound and not finish. The veneer on these
has some bubbles which could be easily rectified, but from my listening chair, they look fine.

I have been in audio for many years and sound per dollar has never been better than this.

Have two pair and only need one. These sound incredible and have the FST tweeter and Mega woofers.

These are incredible speakers when set up right and used with quality gear. Crap in equals Crap out.

240 lbs each, so these are for local Sacramento and Bay area, Reno area hand deliver once Paypal payment has cleared.

(NO SHIPPING)"

I think the seller is getting desperate.  These could maybe sell for a decent price.


VMPS Ribbon Monitors - $1250 (Pleasantville, NY)

http://newyork.craigslist.org/wch/ele/4406015462.html





"Two stereo speakers. Large floorstanding. Approx 14"x16"x48" each weighing 120 lbs. Each speaker contains two ribbon tweeters, two mid-range ribbon panels, one active 12" carbon fiber woofer plus 12" downfiring passive woofer. Very good-to-excellent condition. Used with care. Never abused.

Original owner. Purchased factory direct. In addition to piano black ($400 extra) finish, also added mega woofers and additional Soundcoat insulation/bracing in cabinets, more expensive wiring (all done at factory with initial order). All told, total original price around $3600.

Fantastically revealing mid-range and big bass. Moved to apartment and just can't deal with size (well, gf can't). Were in main system which didn't get a lot of use.

Specification excerpts:
Power Handling 300 Watts
Frequency Range 22 Hz-25kHz
Sensitivity 91 dB/1W/1m
Dimensions 45" H x 14" W x 16" D
Weight 120 lbs


Prefer not to ship. Located in Pleasantville, NY (Westchester County)."

Repost:  VMPS Ribbon Monitor One - $825 (Redford Twp.)

http://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/ele/4425540293.html





"Listing my Beloved VMPS RM-1 speakers for sale. These are in Light Oak finish and are a easy 9/10 condition. They were manufactured in 2003.

The Serial numbers are 11654 / 11655 respectively.

I upgraded thru Brian the Graphite woofers to the Woven Carbon Fiber ( Mega ) 4 woofers at a cost of over $400.00 with shipping, and were well worth it! These also have the Wave Guides on the mid panel and tweeter.

These are Audiophile grade loudspeakers that don't come around to often for good reason."
